barack obama: are republicans in congress willing to let the cuts fall on our kids' schools and mental health care to protect tax loopholes for corporate jet owners? >> chris: senator coburn, is the president exaggerating the impact of these cuts? >> absolutely. and, you see the typical set up the strawman. the federal government is twice the size it was 11 years ago. we are spending almost $4,000, per person, per year, coming out of the federal government. $12,000. the average family is on the hook for unfunded liabilities, in excess of 3/4 of a million dollars, per family. and, what and wsequestration, i is a terrible way to cut spending but not to cut 2.5% over the total budget over a year when it is twice the size it was ten years ago? give me a break. the american people, we see all the claims, what a tragedy it is going to be. the great example is, is if the secretary of transportation, can assure us all the planes will be safe, then the department of homeland security can assure us that we can get through the airports on time. they have plenty of flexibility in terms of discreti

were advanced and beyond what the democrats were able to do. the democrats under obama have caught up and far surpassed when republicans are able to do in terms of both gathering data, but then analyzing it and putting it to use, either to turn voters out, to discourage voters for the opposition from showing up, and in addition to that using social media as a way to harness support among the electorate in general. i think there are many areas here where republicans know they have to improve, but they've got to figure out how to do it, and what the chairman is doing both in visiting facebook, talking to technology experts in the bay area of northern california, and he'll be in washington state in seattle to talk about early voting in general. there, jon as you remember democrats are just a lot better right now at turning out voters for early voting. why that's so important, sometimes it's hard to convince somebody to show up on one day out of 365. but if you've got four weeks to work them over you can get them out to vote and end up with more voters. jon: success r- mark zuckerberg is
with president obama's proposal in the first place and they eventually voted for when they passed the bill through the house. the second thing they are saying is this is not that significant in size, but they are saying the way they are that good across the entire government, across-the-board cuts is harmful, so they should be targeted to better places and the way they are implemented in obama needs to come together to find a better place to implement them. >> house democrats have their own plan for averting the sequestered. can you invite as sinister a chance to get voted on? >> house democrats released a proposed that one third spending cut into thirds tax increases. spending cuts hit the farm subsidies and then a tax increase you remember the so-called buffet wrote, which is an alternative minimum tax for people who earn over $1 million a year in income and would set their tax rate is at least 30%. a lot of times they were tax rate reductions and other loopholes. so those are the two main parts of that plan announced their proposal. the white house spin assembler as well. >> can you tel
